Miyamoto is confident in the upcoming Wii U line-up, but is hard at work in bringing gamers a new franchise.
"I hope people are looking forward to the games coming up," said Miyamoto. "We'll have Mario Kart 8 out next spring, and at that point we'll have the whole line-up in place, so I think it's about time we brought out a new franchise. I can't give out details, but that's the title that's been keeping me pretty busy lately."
Nintendo's first-party Wii U line-up for 2013 is comprised of Pikmin 3, Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and Mario Kart 8.
Notably, while the interview makes it sound like a Wii U game, Miyamoto does not explicitly state whether the new franchise is for the Wii U or 3DS, or both.
